Belo Horizonte ( clean and fast, but line 1 is all surface, line 2 and 3 are being built and it seems most part of them are underground )
Brasilia ( brand new, clean, fast, but still some stations are under construction )
Toronto ( very fast and convinient, stations are close to each other )
Montreal ( very clean, but trains are a bit old )
